Preparing for adulthood
The Preparing for Adulthood programme provides expertise and support to local authorities and their partners to embed preparing for adulthood from the earliest years.
The Preparing for Adulthood outcomes are based on what disabled young people say is important to them. Ultimately, young people want to have full lives with choices about their future and control of their support.
We work with the Department for Education and its partners to ensure that young people with SEND achieve paid employment, independent living and housing options, good health, friendships, relationships and community inclusion as they move into adulthood.
Preparing for Adulthood has refreshed a suite of person-centred planning materials; before using these materials, please read this introduction as well as the guidance provided with each tool. This includes a link to vocational profiling.
A vocational profile is a way of gathering information. It is a discovery document, that is specifically related to work and supporting someone to find a job.
